That's Why They Have the Race

Armstrong isolated on the Col de la Schlucht, 190km into today's stage. Vino attacked, springing Andreas Klöden loose (along with eventual stage winner Pieter Weening). T-Mobile now has three riders in striking distance of Armstrong. The scary part was that Discovery Channel shouldn't be tired yet.

Hopefully, it was just an off day. I'm sure now that Vino will go for it tomorrow, trying for the stage win, time on Armstrong, or just making DC work hard to protect their lead.

So despite opinions to the contrary, there is still a lot of racing to do, and this race isn't in the bag for Armstrong. Not even close.

Tee hee. We blogged about the same thing, too funny. Just watched the stage tonight over at David's on the mamouth projection TV. Good stuff.
